Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ladywell dates from the late 18th Century and was originally two cottages but is now an attractive and spacious family home in very good order with excellent accommodation and generous sized rooms. There are many period features including sash windows, open fireplaces, picture rails and very good ceiling heights throughout the house. It has a pretty south facing garden and views of the
countryside beyond.

The front porch opens into a large hallway leading to all the downstairs rooms. There is an inviting kitchen/breakfast room with range style cooker and large walk in larder, family room, large formal dining room, drawing room with french doors to the garden, study, cloakroom and utility room.

The staircase leads up to a wide landing off which is the master bedroom with large en suite bathroom, 4 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate WC. The bedrooms at the rear of the house have far reaching views across the garden to the countryside beyond. There is scope to incorporate two more en suite bathrooms if required.

Ladywell is situated in Speen Lane, one of the most popular areas of Newbury and within a short distance of the town centre. Speen is one of the oldest parts of the town with a beautiful village church and the Kennet & Avon canal passes through it.

Newbury has a very wide range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities including the renowned Watermill Theatre and Newbury racecourse.

The town has excellent road and rail communications linking quickly with London and other major town and cities, yet is only a short distance from the peace and quiet of the beautiful surrounding countryside with great opportunities for walking, riding and other country activities. There is a mainline station with trains into London Paddington in under an hour.

There is a wide range of schools available in the area, both state and private, including The Downs, St Bartholomew's, Cheam, St Gabriel's, Downe House and Radley College.

At the side of the house there is a garage and parking area. A path leads to the pretty garden with a large area of lawn, well stocked shrub and herbaceous borders and a large terrace area.
